So, a few years ago I blogged for a short time at Feministe, and they had (and still have) one of my favorite features in the blogosphere: Shameless Self-Promotion Sunday. This is where indie bloggers use the comment thread to post links to awesome stuff they’ve written lately.
I won’t lie: my selfish motivation behind bringing this feature into my own blog is to get a pile of juicy reading materials dumped right onto my desktop. And also for readers to discover cool new blogs they never knew existed! Everyone wins!
1. Write a comment containing a link to a post you’ve written along with a short, intriguing description. Don’t just post a link to your whole blog.
2. Only post a link if you’re writing on a small blog with a limited readership. If you’re a mega-blogger, we already know you’re awesome.
3. No racist, sexist, or otherwise offensive stuff, please.
My blog doesn’t have a huge readership at the moment, so I’m not sure this’ll take off, but it’s worth a try! Maybe I’ll get zero links and I’ll cry. Or maybe I’ll get a million and I’ll also cry, except from joy! I’ll try to do this every other week.
